10" LX6 on a Meade 884 Tripod

I have so thoroughly enjoyed using my 8" SCTs on my Twilight I mount and my 8" LX3 and I decided to re-fork my 10" LX6 Premiere. Since it is a bit of a beast to set up on its Meade Giant Field Tripod and Meade Super Wedge I wanted the option to use it in a simpler, lightweight configuration. To accomplish this I made an adapter plate for one of my Meade 884 tripods. I'm not so foolish to ever try using the tilt-plate, but in altaz mode it works fine.

Fun stuff.
